In the past few months, my mom and I’ve switched to get my news through Newsbreak. Its entire news feed revolves around our personal interests. I like the way they present the “Following” tab as well as “For You” tab, both delivering personalized news feed. I am also impressed by the numerous good-quality sources they have, which seems to be the key metrics for a good news app right now. The full coverage of local news is the reason my mom love this app and choose it, as my family can get the latest news from our county and the news around the world. I do not get swamped with push notifications that much. .. the notifications I do receive are nice and gentle reminders of good stories that are available to read, which also reminds me that I have the application (which is nice! ). The only glitch is that sometimes they get me the old news stories in the notification, which confused me a little bit. I am looking forward to a way to report this error to the team so that they can do something about it. General speaking, Newsbreak is my favorite news app among several for now!

Finally a company creates and excellent News app with a great and comfortable experience!!! News Break app I just want to give a shout out to your company and team. Normally I don’t care about news reporting agencies. However, the news break app is so far the best service I’ve ever used to date. It perfectly blends local news with national news. Also, yes like everyone else I can’t stand advertisements or advertising, but I know its necessary for revenue. News Break app beautiful balances this too! They do it in a way we’re advertisements are not, “IN YOUR FACE” excessive and overwhelming! Kudos News Break App for truly displaying news I can truly use of interest. I love how you take me directly to the news articles without any caked on advertising fluff! Simply beautiful!!!!! I’ll put this review on Twitter for you too!!!

No response from developers to either my earlier review or to an email to their support asking for help several months ago. I cannot seem to get rid of real estate (home for sale) notifications constantly showing up in the news feed and as notifications. The notices are for my area, but the sheer number of them is ridiculous! I do not know if this is tied to the newspaper in my local area being used as a news source or not, since Newsbreak will not respond to me, but it is annoying enough to delete the app. Earlier review: I like this app a lot, but is slow as heck on my iPad 4. Since the app supports back to iOS 9, there should be a way to refine settings a lot more in order to help the app perform far better on older devices. It is sloooooowwww when trying to load any sources that are media intensive. It would suit me just fine to block those sites or to block video in general as a setting. I don't need it. Great variety of news though, and more importantly, it really pulls in my local news for me.

This app is perfect to keep up with local news and other topics of interest. I love the push notifications and would give it a five star if it wasn’t for one frustrating glitch. Whenever a notification of a story pops up on my phone, and I click on it to read, the story opens for a brief second and before I can click on it to read, the app refreshes it’s stories and I can’t find it anymore. I’ve resorted to seeing if I can beat the refresh moment..so it’s part of the fun. But seriously can you make it so that the notification actually open the story directly? There have been times I wasn’t able to find it and had to resort to searching on safari or just not reading it. This app is wonderful and that glitch doesn’t take away from its great features. There isn’t another app like it that I can find, so I will make it my go to. Thanks for developing it. Great work.

News break is the best app I’ve tried for getting local news. I’ve tried many, but for most of the others, that means news from the nearest large cities. I live in a rural town and finding truly small town local news news online is difficult. Yes, you can go to your newspaper’s site, but that’s just what they cover. News break grabs all three of the very small towns in my community and spoon feeds it to me. That includes special events! There’s one large issue. If you share a story, people have to download the app to read it. Sight unseen, none of my friends has, so I no longer share because they resent being sent an article they have to download an app for. I wouldn’t download it either. Most news sites allow one to go to a link on the web rather than demanding a download. Seems like a much better way to get new subscribers.
